The Office for Student Engagement staff enjoys a close relationship with the Reed student senate. We attend senate meetings, meet with senate leadership and work with the treasury.
Student Senate Fall 2020
The student senate plays an influential role on Reed's campus. Senate is the voice of the students: its members fund student organizations, participate in campus policy-making, and work with the staff members to improve the quality of student life. If you would like to get involved or learn more about the election process, email a current senate member.
Location: The President/VP office is located in the Student Union upstairs hallway
Meetings: Student Union, noon Wednesdays (Spring 2020)
Calendar: Meetings with agendas and office hours!
Reed log-in required.
The student body treasurers run the funding process. They keep track of student organization budgets, manage student body funds, and disburse money.
Location: The Treasurers’ office is located in the Student Union upstairs hallway
Finance Committee meetings: 8 p.m., Wednesdays, Eliot 207
Finance Committee Chairs:
Treasury forms: Disbursement and Loan forms available outside the treasurers’ office door or online with Reed log-in.
This senate committee appoints students to a variety of committees and positions on campus. Serving on a committee is a good way to get involved on campus and learn how the college works. For more information on the appointments committee, and to apply for an open position visit the Handshake.
Appointments Committee chair
Appointments opportunities open on a weekly basis and are announced in the Student Body Info newsletter. Numerous positions are available in the fall, and are listed in an approximate schedule below. Students are encouraged to apply to appointed positions throughout the semester, and to re-apply to positions if not initially successful.
Student Opportunity Subsidy Committee
SOS Committee chair
Reed Student Body Senate Bylaws mandate that the interest earned from the Student Body Endowment shall go towards projects which broadly benefit the student body. A student committee, chaired by a student senator, and made up entirely of students, oversees the SOS program which may provide funds detailed below.
Discretionary grants assist students experiencing substantial financial hardship who would benefit significantly from a single grant of up to $2,000. This may include, but is not limited to, necessary medical costs, unexpected educational costs, or emergency travel costs. Please contact the SOS Committee chair directly for instructions on how to apply. Grants are available on a rolling basis throughout the year, and applications may be submitted through the final day of class.
